New Grant Opportunity: Innovations in the Public Awareness of Anthropology

The Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2016. As part of our anniversary initiatives we are introducing a new grant Program, Innovations in the Public Awareness of Anthropology (IPAA). IPAA grants are awarded to individuals holding an advanced degree (doctorate or masters) or equivalent in anthropology or a closely related discipline to support innovative projects to raise public awareness of anthropology among groups of all ages.

The maximum amount is US $20,000 and a minimum of ten grants will be funded during the 75th anniversary year. Continuation of this program in future years will depend on the sustained interest of the field and the overall success of the program during the anniversary year. Applicants can apply regardless of institutional affiliation, country of residence, or nationality. Application deadlines are December 1, 2015 and June 1, 2016.
